Went there for the beef ribs (the meat almost falls off the bone), and saw some people being served the seafood platter for two after we had ordered, so my wife and son had that when we went back two nights later. The platter is HUGE, and really needs two people to tackle it. It is served with some excellent... More

We went there is search of a seafood platter after seeing great reviews on Trip Advisor. Arrived for lunch - basically no seafood!

One of our regular Friday night haunts. The menu isn't very inspiring (well not after 50+ visits) but the fresh fish is always fresh and well-cooked which is more than can be said for a lot of other PV restaurants.

We went twice to this restaurant as we enjoyed it so much the first time. The atmosphere is great and the staff are very attentive and friendly. The food was lovely I had fish which was cooked perfectly and full of flavour. Good entertainment while dining too.

We viewed the menu during the afternoon and asked if the lobster was available. The check with the chef confirmed it was not there (a wise tip if you are set on lobster). The location impressed so we booked for the evening meal (my wife’s birthday) any way and was not disappointed. Good menu available and drinks were good with... More

The place looks nice, the beers are cold, the staff is great, but the food turned out to be very overpriced and totally disappointing. It's a place only for tourist as you would only eat there once. Yuk !
